The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter Two—Page 19

188 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter Two—Page 19

Another page of kissing stuff?! WTF?! And why are they taking off their shirts? They are in a mountain warehouse! You’d think it’d be chilly! This doesn’t make any sense!

Anyway! Please take a moment to check out the Kickstarter for Mahou Shonen Fight. The creators are very cool folk and I got to know them because I really enjoyed their comic. You should go read it and then consider getting your own copy through the Kickstarter. I’m a happy backer myself; the teen-friendly, PG-13 comic is funny and fun; and I think you’ll like what they’re doing. (Also a bunch of your favorite creators—like E from Teahouse and Chira from Sfeer Theory are making Kickstarter-exclusive art for the project. And you won’t want to miss that. 🙂 ) Check it out and tell ’em Alex sent you!

Oh, and


Our fourth bonus page in a row! And look below! We’re already at $125 towards the next bonus page!

Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Michael H. (who makes their second generous donation to The Young Protectors!), Angharad L. (who makes their third generous donation to The Young Protectors!) & Lisa G. (who makes their twenty-sixth (!!) generous donation to The Young Protectors!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Daniel M., Amber J., Cindy S., Rodney G., Nicole P., Nadin B., Valerie G., Anja H ., Ana A., Daniel G., Molly E., & Arthur M. for their generous donations over the last few days! (Wow! A bunch of new donators this time around!)

Big hugs go out to new friends of The Young Protectors Elizabeth L. & Ann C. and also to long-time friends Pam W., Marc B. & Adriane L. for their super-generous $25 donations! And this makes Pam’s second, Marc’s twelfth and Adriane’s twenty-fourth (!) super-generous donations to this comic!

And finally, superhero-strength hugs go out to new super-friends Benjamin M. for their amazingly generous $50 donation and also to Jill M. for their amazingly generous $52 donation! Thank you so much, Jill and Benjamin! You rock!

Thank you all so much for your generous support!

So! Now both their shirts are off! Clearly this can’t continue for long—they don’t have much clothes left! Does this mean that Hunter & Killer will finally come crashing through the window? Or how about the other Young Protectors team members? Surely it’s high time for them to mount a “rescue” of Kyle from the evil Annihilator, right?! Right?!

Will Young Alex finally be saved from all the kissy bits or will even more bits be kissed? Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • Klaus

    The birthday gifts are not quite unwrapped yet.

    • Khun David

      I really want to see Kyle take off the bow.

      • Stubbylegs

        Judging by the position of Duncan’s right hand in the last panel, it won’t be long before one “bow” gets unwrapped…

  • *faints* I can’t anymore. Alex, you’ve finally killed me.

  • Stubbylegs

    OMG I love the expressions on Kyle’s face in the first few panels!

    • thisfox

      He’s such a puppy! It is adorable.

  • Adam Black

    The “last” Page button still directs to page18

    Probably why its so why its so quite here.
    what kind of underwear is does our hero wear?

    something fireproof?

    • Khun David

      I think asbestos has been banned. Then again, that wouldn’t stop Duncan, would it?

      • Adam Black

        Thats just propaganda,
        INMSHE, hearing “my ass is on fire” usually ends the fun for good.

    • The “last page button” fail is pretty much always a browser caching issue. Next time that happens, try clearing your browser cache and then reloading the page. That usually does the trick. (Or wait 15 minutes for your browser’s cache to refresh itself. 🙂 )

      And, of course, the Archive page will list the latest pages when refreshed. Just FYI.

      • Adam Black

        From the time stamps of when you said 19 was going up, till I was the first to comment, many hours went by.

        That timelag was what made me suspicious enough to put it in in manually, bypassing the “last” button.

        I could have just been lucky, but with all these Eager Yaoing Protectors and Protectrosesses , I severely DOUBT i came first…

        I was just the first to have more faith in your words, than what the lying webpage wanted to show me, and busted in.

        Even AFTER I could access 19, “last” still redirected to 18.

        Perhaps the timestamps are grossly wrong, but it appeared a lot of people were tricked before me, from seeing the site

        puns left in intentionally

  • Stubbylegs

    With the way things are going, I’m surprised their clothes haven’t burned off already!

  • KrisYWC

    Worth the wait.

  • *swoon*

  • Sapfo

    High pressure front coming in with great heat. Flame up Kyle.

    • Maria White

      In other news, it appears that the internet received heavy traffic this morning and quite nearly crashed the system. One person from the deepest part of Utah had this to say about the matter:
      “Oh god, oh god, oh GO-…. I need to use the bathroom.”

      Now up next is “Who’s Gay?” with our always lovely Neil Patrick Harris!

  • Jamie Dutton

    O.O wubba? Um, uh, wooooooooow!
    That middle panel is absofrigginlutely GORGEOUS!! Please say that will be a print option! Shouldn’t something be on fire by now, well besides us, I mean? This has got me feeling all tingly and light headed…yeah, tingly 😀

    As for Mahou Shounen, I backed it almost as fast as I backed yours, Alex! More prints to cover my walls!! Oh and if it hits enough stretch goals there will be plushies…Plushies!!

  • Soubi

    Is it Saturday yet?

  • Adam Black

    Looks like Duncan may be playing porn disco in the background.

    Whats the word-of-god on the audio ?

    • Jamie Dutton

      I keep asking but Alex hasn’t said anything, yet.

      • Adam Black

        Thats a porn-disco striptease if I ever saw one

  • CH

    I believe the word for this is “guh” as no actually sounds can be made while looking at it.
    Great job one and all.

  • Stubbylegs

    Lol, I’d like to see the rest of the YP team burst in and try to “rescue” Kyle…and the looks on their faces when they realize that Kyle seems to really like what’s going on…;)

    *I wouldn’t REALLY want to see that happen, at least not until after Duncan and Kyle are done touching all the things.

    • Stubbylegs

      Of course that would probably lead the YP team to conclude that Duncan had used some sort of placating mind-control device to get him to go along with all the sexytimes…which would then lead to a very awkward coming-out tirade from a VERY angry Kyle..

    • Amanda

      If they did, and I was Kyle, I would go seriously bad ass villain.

  • Camille Martin

    NO INTERUPTIONS!! But I do agree that his teammates busting in at the end would be hilarious.

  • Shinashi

    Gah, their bodies are magnificent, and Kyle seems to be enjoying himself sooo much 😀

    • Stubbylegs

      Yeah I love the facial expressions. I especially like how with Kyle, they’re not sticking with the typical sex faces (you know, the blushing cheeks and gaping mouths). I see a mixture of amusement/excitement (especially in the first 3 panels) and pure bliss (especially in the last one).

  • Cagetheraven

    Just interesting to point out that during the fight with Hunter & Killer, Kyle could have stolen the power dampener machine instead of breaking it. For safer sexy-times.

  • Feverfew_M

    Well, Alex, I’m afraid this might be a kissing story after all. You must be very strong now. 😉
    Meanwhile I’m just going to echo Kyle: Mmmm.

    • Sapfo

      Kyle likes his M/M:s 😉

      • Feverfew_M

        Hehe, who doesn’t? 😀

    • I’ll try!

  • Klaus

    Thank you for suggesting a rescue by the YP in the intro text. I have been worrying that this might happpen. Now we know that it will not.

    • Stubbylegs

      You never know; back when they were in Hong Kong, Duncan may really have been looking for a contact lens ;).

    • You really think a “double-fake-out” is beyond me?

      Well, we’ll just have to see… 😉

  • Kyle is learning the finesse of seduction. He doesn’t have the seductive moves all there yet, but the eagerness and joy work just as well 🙂

    That’s what I like about Kyle. He seems like the personality that, when he sets his mind for it, goes into it fully and no hesitation. Be it hero-jobs or now sex and losing that virginity *lol*

    There might be a bit chilly there, but I doubt they’re feeling it at all. That neck kissing and touching *fans self* HEAT is rising.

    Uhm.. and now I got the thought that there might be other good reasons to stay BEHIND Kyle.. at least until the ‘hose’ is releases …. just saying XD

  • I’m biting my nails because I’m just waiting for something – anything – to blow up. I can’t just enjoy the nice things!

    • I could make a few replies about the ‘blow up’ that we wouldn’t mind at all, but I’m sure you know where I’m going with that without having to say it 😉 *mind is set on naughty-mode*

      • Stubbylegs

        I have no idea where you’re going with that- tell me!!!!

    • Feverfew_M

      Same here! In between al the squealing, swooning, and drooling these last few pages induced, there’s always that niggling feeling in the back of my mind that something is bound to happen. Soon.

  • StarrySkyDancer

    I see words!!:P

    • I’m starting small. Easing us back into them.

      Or am I? 😉

  • doireallyhave2

    I am just waiting to for it to really heat up and to see how long the bed lasts!

  • Holly

    When I saw the first three panels I said aloud, “Oh so happy right now.”
    This phrase shortened for every panel I saw until I just said the word “Haaaapppy” for the last panel.

    This looks really amazing. And I am excited(in more than one way) for more.

    • Hehe. That’s a great account of your response. 🙂

  • SpookyDomme

    I love how this and the previous page pretty much amounts to Kyle going, “(looks Duncan up and down) WELP. (shirt hits floor roughly .0000002 seconds later)”
    Also, the sheer look of bliss on his face in the last panel.

    And Duncan. Just…Duncan. I mean, seriously, ga’dang.

  • Amanda

    Absolutely perfect.

  • SofiaT

    I find Duncan to be incredibly sexy. Very, um, solid. And the hairy chest is a huge turn on. So I really feel for Kyle. I do. I hope Mr Sexiness Personified doesn’t break his heart.

    P.S.: If anyone interupts them NOW, Young Protector or villain, I think Kyle will make a nice roast out of them in the condition he is at the moment… and who can blame him?

    Oh, Duncan… *sigh*

    • SofiaT

      P.P.S: The colours and the pencils in this page are fantastic. The facial expressions are so important in pages when there is no text (“Mm” doesn’t count). Great work Adam and Veronica!

  • I can’t be the only on who feels the temperature rising in here.

    :fanning myself:

  • Lilka Lilianna

    I do so like Kyle’s goofy-sexy style!

    Adorable doesn’t even begin to describe it… and he makes it look absolutely enticing, too!

    • I agree. I couldn’t help but shake my head and giggle. Makes you wanna ruffle his hair.

    • Marie Laurent

      In the last panel he looks like a cat getting the right itch- streetttch, grin

  • Khun David

    From personal experience, as a ginger myself, that hickey that Kyle is getting is really going to be noticable.

    • Stubbylegs

      I wonder if that might be the way his teammates find out, i.e. them teasing him about the “girl” who gave it to him. Kyle’s inability to hide his emotions well won’t serve him well at all. Either that, or he’ll get teased and just decide to say “screw it” and just come out and tell them the truth.

    • Marie Laurent

      His uniform is pretty conservative-necked though, and he could not be sucking… but I want to agree with stubby

      • Stubbylegs

        Lol, even if they don’t see the hickey, his teammates will probably tease him about where he was that night.

  • Matt Dymond

    Damn, that last panel set me off. :3

  • YG_Frenchie

    ~ ~ ~ The amount of FEELS I’m going through right now. ~ ~ ~

    And none of it is perverted. I’m just so happy for Kyle. He’s so lucky that his first time is taken seriously and made all about him by someone who’s not only experienced but who cares and isn’t thinking about just getting his own pleasure out of it. At least I’m hoping that’s Duncan’s intention. I can’t help but listen to that little voice at the back of my head that’s saying “He’s still a villain, you never know!” But the 99% rest of me is thinking that he’s genuine. *crush that 1%*

    Beautiful page!! I am going to look at it about a few thousand times before Saturday’s update. I always come peeking back and noticing new details.


  • kaycee1967

    I’m honestly misty eyed… I remember that feeling. It’s been a long time, but I remember it so well.

  • YangYueLan

    Holy Fuck! *nosebleed*

  • SleepingDragon

    I just want to say that here we have a greatly drawn erotic scene, with characters who have defined personalities and backgrounds (something that I really like in my erotica)… and the main thing on my mind is that I hope we can get back to the story relatively quickly because I wanna find out what the “old guard” of the superhuman world are cooking and how this is all going to play out. I think this speaks volumes about the quality of storytelling.

    • Thank you very much. That’s an awesome thing to say. 🙂

  • Gaz Hawkins

    now come on Dunc, at least ONE of those hands HAS to move up to Klye’s nipples (followed by a mouth)

  • streetwalkersan

    “Young Alex,” you say? Don’t you mean Kyle? Freudian slip? XD Can’t hold it against ya though. I wouldn’t mind some more kissy bits myself… 😉

    Anyway, great page! Love Kyle’s face (and body) in that last panel, and both their poses are just delicious!

    • Not a Freudian slip, just AlexHumor. Young Kyle, of course, has no problems with the kissy bits right now. 😉

      Glad you like the page!

  • Katie Chambers

    IS it wrong of me to desire being in the room with a camera with these two right now? This is so cute,I wanna implode from the sweet sexiness

    • Amanda

      I’m glad that I am not the only one.

      • John

        Well if you WERE you’d soon be burned to a crips but other than that I imagine you are far and away the only ones who want to be a firefly on the wall

  • Rashel Izro

    I rarely find myself turned on and contented so easily and in so few panels

  • I can’t get over how pumped Kyle looks in those first three panels. You just know his thoughts are a chorus of “Fuck yeah!”s, and I love it! Enthusiasm makes it better for everyone involved.

  • Yukiness

    My face hurts from blushing so hard I can’t stand it.

  • Monica

    I don’t get fluttered by this kinda stuff… But Anni… ohhh he is a man! <3

  • Ikaru Sentinal-K’Valshar

    OMG…Kyle is like…so pumped. It made me giggle…I sorta find myself not able to take him seriously. But Anni is serious enough for both. <3

  • Airenya

    the real question is, “why are they taking of their shirts? It’s all gonna be burned anyway… hopefully” XD
    Good job, I love this!

  • Thomas David Hamilton

    this is just awesome i can’t wait for saturday *bounces around*

  • So glad I found your comic. I’ve been absolutely hooked and can’t wait for the next page!!

    That being said, I have a minor criticism…
    The middle panel… I’m pretty sure a handsome 18-year-old who knows he is about to lose his virginity to a sexy older guy would have something straining against the fabric in his britches!

    Just sayin’… 🙂

    Lovin’ the Kyle/Duncan story line… 😉

  • xenie

    MORE KISSING!!!!! So cute!!!

  • Lotys

    Why does age play turn me on so much! First Snape/Harry, now Duncan/Kyle. I’m, literally, sweating over here and it has nothing to do with the weather.

  • TheGodEaters

    The first three panels Kyle reminds me of a puppy, he’s so adorably eager. Oh yeah, the shirt must goooooo!! And next it’s on to more kissing and touching. I can feel the heat rising already.

  • Stubbylegs

    You know, I wouldn’t mind seeing Duncan lose a little of that control. It is nice to see him so in control, and it IS nice for Kyle’s first sexytime to be with someone who clearly knows what he’s doing, but I do want to see Duncan lose himself in the throes of passion.

    • Derkins

      I agree that it would be nice to see Duncan loose some control, and especially in the throes of passion (!) … but regardless of Duncan’s experience Kyle seems super comfortable with, and excited about, what’s happening. He’s doesn’t look nervous or shy what so ever. Who knows, maybe he’ll be fairly uninhibited.

    • RBK

      But, um, doesn’t Duncan have super strength?

      • Stubbylegs

        It’s more a psychological thing, so I think it could still happen :p.

      • Stubbylegs

        I should add, though, that this sort of thing likely wouldn’t happen the first time. It might take a few more tries for Kyle to figure out what really works on Duncan and how to take advantage of that.

        • RBK

          Here’s hoping!

          (. . . See, I’m still so worried about what Duncan has planned. I mean, less worried than I was, knowing that Duncan looks up to Superman, or at least used to, and that he seems to really genuinely like Kyle, although I can’t tell if he sees Kyle as more ignorant or innocent, although almost certainly some kind of mixture of both. . . . Anyways. Worried. Me. Yep. But hoping for more sexy times!)

          • Stubbylegs

            I’m wondering if maybe Duncan started out with some sort of nefarious plan, but has (or at least eventually will) abandon it as he realizes that he has some genuine feelings for Kyle.

          • RBK

            Maybe. . . . But I don’t want to get my hopes up. This story gives me so many feels, and I already worry about the emotional roller coaster the next two-ish years of updates will bring.

  • Darkflame173

    I stand by something I once said, the less the clothing, the faster the donation bar rises. And other things…..

  • Kyle is slowing learning how to seduce. Give some cute, yet silly expressions, awkwardly strip, grin. Sexy! 😛
    You really do know how to leave your fanbase wanting more, Alex. This is sublime and I cannot wait for more! 😀

  • TwilightDreamer

    *grins*…..sent my friend out of the room cause I knew there’d been an update, and I couldn’t wait to see it! 😀
    The wait is so cruel! XD but loving it!

  • Skittles 4ever

    Is it weird that at the bottom of the page all I wanted to do was tell him to take his shoes off before he got on the bed??? >.<

    • Stubbylegs

      Meh, the bed’s getting burned to a crisp soon enough anyway; I’m not sure shoes matter ;).

      • Skittles 4ever

        You’re probably right! ^_^

        Also, is it just me or does fire-boy look like a happy little gecko in the last panel?

        • Stubbylegs

          OMG yes! I hadn’t thought of that, but now I can’t unsee it- he’s adorable!

        • Derkins

          haaa he totally does!

      • YG_Frenchie

        I’m wondering if maybe Duncan had Platinum Preistess use her abilities to make the bed fireproof so they have somewhere to snuggle afterwards? I’m sure she has a spell for that, oui? I’m hoping.

    • Derkins

      yes 😉 I completely missed that little detail cause I was staring at their chests and expressions. O.O

  • Megan Staples

    More kisses! lol
    That middle panel is pure paradise. Kyle’s expressions in the top panels are very cute. And he may as well be a cat in cream in the last panel. 🙂
    Let Kyle have his first time before anyone breaks down the door, eh?

  • Cman65

    And from now till every more young Kyle will love a hard hairy cheast

  • Lindsey Amethyst Hampton


  • Derkins

    I’m anticipating the image of burned/burning rose petals

  • Krondor2000

    And those hands are slowly and deliberately heading toward the button of Kyle’s slacks. Oh my!!

  • i’m feeling like i should be averting my eyes, actually

    jeez.. ..let me close the door so you guys can enjoy some privacy!

    inb4 Platinum Priestess shows up

    • DoktorNauk

      Me, too. It feels like staring directly at the sun.

    • Stubbylegs

      I prefer to think of Duncan as a rabid exhibitionist. As for Kyle, well, he’s an 18-year-old soon-to-be-ex-virgin, so I’m not sure how much he cares ;).

      • dunky’s a rabid exhibitionist, eh?

        and kyle might become an ex-virgin

        this makes for an interesting combination, for sure

        an ‘i am concerned, naught, with whomever may bear witness to our conjugating’ sort of combo

        • Stubbylegs

          ‘You may admire my phallus, but kindly keep your distance. You may take a photograph if you must.’

  • Jason Equality King

    In panel 3, why am I hearing “I’m ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille!”?

  • Kisa

    Okay, I giggled at Kyle taking off his shirt! But my goooooodness! *swoon*

    • John

      I know. He seriously couldn’t get out of it quickly enough could he!

  • Lillihandra

    O.O *Quickly mops up drool from keyboard*

    Woooo… Damn, Alex. Nice little scene there. Very well done.

  • Melodic

    the lack of Annis fingernails is bothersome xDD

    • RedWildPony

      What are you looking at?????

      • Stubbylegs

        I’m guessing the last panel, with the exception of the thumbs.

  • RustyBurrell

    I think that last panel may be my favorite of this entire story and Artifice combined…

  • amanda

    OMG!! shiver!! love it!!!

  • Jinxbrand

    You guys are awesome.

  • Fox

    I like the way this is going!

  • warwriter

    Go lower, my man, Duncan. Lower.

  • Vik-Thor

    whew! »handfans«
    very nice artwork!

  • Amanda

    Does Saturday seem to be taking forever to get here?

  • Panel 4 might be the center piece of this page, but I can’t stop looking at the last panel. Duncan has found the good spot there. No wonder Kyle is humming in delight.

    Still.. some of the things I like the most is the ‘minor’ details. How Kyle is well trained, but not pumped. He’s barely just turned 18, and I like that he has that touch of .. youth.. for the lack of a better word. A thing like having Kyle’s treasure trail below his belly button, showing he’s just smooth and doesn’t shave his chest.

    Heh, talking about body hair. What I noticed even the first time I read the page.. Adam has even made sure to add the detail of Duncan having a fuzzy stomach in panel 4.
    Again, it’s the little details but they all add up to make the art even better 🙂

  • dereule101

    It’s going to be such a bother when they’re getting sweaty and rolling around and they both end up with annoying rose petals glued all over their bodies.

    • Stubbylegs

      Maybe it’ll be like in the movies, where people are having sex in the woods and never seem to get pine needles in their ass, or sand in their ass if they’re doing it on the beach.

      • dereule101

        Pine needles, or ticks.

        • Skittles 4ever

          Ticks sounds painful to have in the nether-regions. Then again, a sand crab doesn’t sound much like a picnic either.

          • GayhawkAZ

            It’s…snappy! xD

  • Always a pleasure. Inspired me to pick up my tablet again, after a month of working double shifts at the hospital. Been so busy, I haven’t had time or the drive. This has made my week. ^^

    • That’s awesome! I always love to hear our work has inspired other artists. 🙂

  • vessto

    Love, love, love it!!!!!!!

  • Muse

    lol they are beautiful together <3

    • Sensational Sai

      ~stalks from own comic~

      • Muse

        lol fancy seeing you here xDDD

        • Sensational Sai

          Oh yes~ We can admire sexytimes together~

  • Skittles 4ever

    It’s official! I’m taking my shirts off like that from now on. =:3

  • Sensational Sai

    Gawd I love this comic. I actually didn’t come across it till my collaborator for my webcomic mentioned we bought adspace here. Then I was like omg hawt older man with younger <3. One of my favorite but slightly wary pairings because not everyone can make it happen. You did! I'm totally a fan now. We'll be making a donation soon, but not until Gilded Cage gets a bit more off the ground and we can relax out wallets a little XD. totally can't wait for more!!!

    • Amanda

      Gilded Cage is awesome, you all have me hooked!
      So awesome to see a creator appreciating someone else’s work so enthusiastically!

      • Sensational Sai

        This comic is amazing, it really gives me ideas for our layout. And god that shirt coming off! I have to make Connor do that.

        • Amanda

          Well, I would totally just say please and thank you if you did that.

    • I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the work. It’s always awesome to get props from another creator. Good luck with your own comic!

      • Sensational Sai

        Thank you so much! We’re both definitely watching this. In fact, we were giggling about Kyle’s face in the end of the last page a bit ago.

  • Stubbylegs

    I really want to donate some money, but that may have to wait- a new baby on the way and a 17-year-old car that is starting to act like a 17-year-old car (i.e. by not doing much of anything), brings the disposable income down a lot :(.

  • Psst. I think you messed up the description. You called Kyle Alex…unless you did that on purpose in which case ignore this…

    • goddesstio

      Wooooow, I didn’t even notice that… Freudian much? XD

      • Goddestio’s second comment is correct. It’s meant to be “Young Alex.” Right now, Young Kyle seems to have no desire to be saved from the kissy bits. 😉

        (Sorry about the confusion. Sometimes the AlexHumor can be a little opaque…)

        • goddesstio

          You can probably chalk some of that up to distracted reading. 🙂

        • I wasn’t sure. Hence my “unless you meant to” bit. 😛 Funny either way haha.

        • Jason Equality King

          As you wish 😉

          Nerd fact: “Alex” means “protector”, from the ancient greek verb “alexo” (αλέξω) = “”to protect”
          The whole name Alexandros/Alexander means “the protector of men” = alex + andros (genitive of “aner” = man)
          Sooooo…. Young Alex *literally* means Young Protector 😀

          • Very interesting! I had always read that Alexander meant “leader of men” but that’s very cool to hear that it stems from an ancient root word meaning to “protect.” I like that! (And I like how it connects with our comic! LOL)

            Perhaps people later confused the word “leader” because of Alexander The Great?

          • SofiaT

            Good point. Most likely that’s what’s happened -if anyone asks again, you can let them know that the verb for leading was “ago” (άγω) so his name would be Agandros if he was the leader of men 😀

            Αλέξω can have two meanings depending on how it’s used. It can mean to protect or to repel; but never to lead. For example, in modern greek, the word for bulletproof is “alexispheros” (so it “protects from bullets” but also “repels bullets” and the word for umbrella is “alexivrohio” (protects from the rain/repels the rain).

            If you choose to use the second meaning, then Alexander is he who keeps the enemy away. But I like the first meaning more. 😀

      Actually, re-reading it, I think he’s joking about himself not having to see any more kissing, (And he is the only one :P)

    I swear to all things good and sexy, if anyone breaks down this party right now I may explode. And not the good kind. The tension is WAY too thick for anyone else to get through, right? RIGHT!?

    • Amanda

      If anyone breaks down this party, I may have to demand that Kyle go super fire villain on someone. Sure he’s a hero, but if I was a horny 17 year old, that close to losing it with a sexy guy like Anni, I think I would definitely have to hurt someone. BADLY.

        Is it terrible of me to want to see him flame out orgasm? Though I worry about Duncan. Super healing be damned, he’s got a hot young thing in his arms!

        • Amanda

          Duncan’s tough, he can handle the heat.

          • Sensational Sai

            Then he better not get outta the kitchen!

        • Nite_Star

          Not terrible, just honest. And honestly, I’m in the same boat. I could REEEEEEEALLY use some explosive action right about now, fire and all 😉

          • Sensational Sai

            Cause baby you’re a fiiiiirework!

      • Adam Black

        If he goes bad, maybe he can use “firecrotch”

    Anyone else camping here with me?

    • Stubbylegs

      Nope. Once again, please ignore the tent and marshmallows.

      • Whitewings

        Well, only if you ignore the fire. I don’t think I’ll really need it anyways. I’m sure the next page will be hot enough to roast both our marshmallows.

    • Yep. And I may be checking and refreshing the page like a madwoman every couple of minutes. You know. Possibly.

      • Whitewings

        Want to sleep… But can’t. Update. Must. Wait… zzzzzzzzzzzz

        • I know your pain. Stave off the sleep with coffee and ridiculous amounts of drawing!

        • Update is baking in the oven. Just twenty minutes away! 🙂

          • Whitewings

            Yay! I will endure! <3

          • Alex, you are a God.

  • For those of you who don’t know. Ahem.

  • Jac

    Can I just say that I love how much warmer Kyle’s skin tone is? It’s not something I really noticed before but it works so well.

    Also that happy trail is freaking adorable.

  • Madara Uchiha
